Updated: Dec 17, 2017


Mr. Karr was born and raised in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He graduated from Plymouth Regional High School in 2000 and then from Andrews University in 2005. He was a student missionary in Japan for one year in 2001-02 and then for a summer in Taiwan in 2004.

He returned to Taiwan and lived there for two and a half years until he married Chin-Ping Tsai on July 6, 2008. Since then, he has lived in Rochester, NY, Plymouth, NH (where he got his M.Ed.), Lincoln City, OR, and High Point, NC.

You'd be surprised to know that...
Mr. Karr is not, in fact, a secret agent.


Mr. Karr is married to Chin-Ping (Vicky) Tsai. They have two children: Alastair Pin-Muo Karr, age 5, and Josephine Pin-Xi Karr, age 3.
